: and there was this on the facebook page of mark kelly, husband of former congresswoman gabby giffords, grievously wounded in a mass shooting last year. gabby and i are extremely disappointed. the nra could have chosen to be a voice for the vast majority of its own members who want commonsense reasonable safety guards on firearms but instead it chose to defend extreme pro-gun positions. but the nra's message today wasn't aimed at its critics. it was a stark reminder to its allies, politicians who need the nra's support. toe the line. >> they stifle any meaningful discussion about these issues everyone, whether you are a democrat or republican, you are afraid of them. they bully you. >> reporter: deborah magguard, former leader in the house of representatives, life-long member of the nra, a staunch conservative. she supported gun rights throughout her career, earning an a-plus rating from the nra, until this year. when she opposed a bill allowing tennesseeans to carry guns in cars. >> never voted against them but the one time we say, wait a minute. this is really not a good idea, they came after me as hard as they c
these killings in aurora, gabby giffords. it's time. the american people are fed up with these mass killings. >> congresswoman, i have to say that i have covered far too many mass shootings going back to columbine, and we always talk about how things have to change, and you say this time it's different, and i can tell you that the heart wrenching scenes that all of us have seen here and on television are in many ways different because of the young children, the 6 and 7-year-olds, but do you think that your window of opportunity for change is finite, because people do move on, and if so, how do you capitalize on it? >> people go back to their normal day to day living. that's absolutely true. it's going to be up to us and it's going to be up to the grassroots and it's going to be the organizations across the country that are going to be working with us to make sure that when the bill is introduced and as we go forward, we get them involved. i'm hoping that the media down the road will always be concentrating on this. remember, we have the anniversary of our colleague gabby giffords getting sho

shooting in tucson, arizona, leaving some dead and others, including congresswoman gabby giffords, severely injured. some say that government and society can take action to prevent violence. that's up 15%. >> a discussion has re-emerged as to what we might do to not only deter mass shootings in the future but reduce epidemic of gun violence that plagues this country every single day. >> that was the president on wednesday as he announced a new effort to prevent such shootings. minds are changing, 43% say the elementary school shootings make them more likely to support gun control laws, 15-point increase from january 2011. and 52% say they now favor major restrictions on guns or making guns illegal, a five-point rise since early august, following the colorado movie theater incident where 12 people were killed. the poll also indicates a big bipartisan divide and gender gap with most democrats and women in favor of gun restrictions and most republicans and men opposed. randi? >> paul steinhauser, thank you very much. we talked about putting armed guards in schools. ian tweeted the solution mus

is metastasized. >> romney in the first debate. president obama in the second debate. >> gabby giffords who came back from a real tragedy and is now back and deserves all the commendation that you can muster up. >> that's a lovely tribute and choice. >> massachusetts campaign was looking sad and troubled there for a while. but she has stuck to it and came out the winner. >> republican governor scott walker. this has been gummed up already by buchanan. despite a bruising show down recall, plus organized labors national money war chest lined up against him, scott walker won handily. does he have a future? >> he does. and you copied mine pretty well. >> most original thinker? >> my magazine the american conservative, which an awful lot of people are looking at and commenting favorably on. something different than the consecutive interventionist. >> do you have a membership to that magazine? >> no, i don't get a dime for it. >> thanks for clearing that up. >> original thinkers misguided senate candidate todd akin in missouri, who says if a woman is legitimately raped the body shuts down and cannot c

to know during the columbine shootings. and then earlier in the year i was in arizona when gabby giffords and the others were shot there. and you do have a sense everywhere you go, obviously, that there is a senselessness to it, there is a lack of understanding, that no amount of information that we get about the shooter can truly help us to understand how someone could do this. but there is a heaviness here that is almost undescribable, ed. and i think it is related to the fact that we're looking at these young, innocent children that if a shooter goes into a elementary school and opens fire on a classroom, he knows that the victims are going to be children who should by all rights, as so many people have said, have their whole lives ahead of them. and the sense of loss, the enormity of the loss is difficult for me to put into words here tonight. >> chris jansing in newtown, connecticut. thank you for joining us tonight and reporting here on "the ed show" on msnbc. thanks so much. the magnitude of this tragedy is enormous for this community of newtown, connecticut. people are turning to

, and someone we'll be watching to come. >> in addition to him, the husband of gabby giffords also made the list. why did politico include mark kelly, the astronaut? >> he's going to be particularly interesting to watch as the gun debate heats up following the christmas break. he is the husband of gabby giffords, former representative who herself was a victim of a mass shooting. he's been a really vocal spokesman on this issue for gun control. they also started interestingly enough a political action committee where they're going to raise funds to support candidates who are on their political wavelengths. he says he will not run. he has not counted out a railings all together. >> we go back to the democratic convention. this is an individual that really did shine. we're talking about san antonio mayor julian castro here. >> absolutely. he is somebody who hit the stage, was the first latino to have a primetime spot at the convention. since then he's focused on san antonio, his role as mayor, but interestingly enough has a 2014 memoir coming out. we know how that has played out for politicians lik

, what happened to gabby giffords, out of school context, but gun violence has been epidemic in this country going back for decades and we go through temporary periods after the reagan assassination attempt and after, you know, several of these other incidents where we have an assault weapon ban and then it is permitted to expire. >> we know the contours of this debate, and it will get heated after an appropriate period of mourning and absorb this tragedy, but it is worth adding all sides of the debate. we don't know what the motive is here. we don't know more about the shooter. we don't know about the weapon involved. we know this is another horrifying case of gun violence. >> here we have hundreds of children in an elementary school. children age 5 to 10 years old. here is one of the children after this morning's terrible incident, which apparently started around 9:30 when the kids were all in -- >> i was -- i went in the hall when, like, everybody heard the bullets. >> yeah. >> they, like, went into a total panic. >> how are you doing? what went on in your head as this was
there were several reports over the weekend after the shooting of gabby giffords that the justice department drew up a list of recommendations to tighten gun checks so that it would be let's likely that some of these guns could get in the hands of someone who wasn't mentally stable and yet the justice department shelved it hasn't done anything about it with an election coming up. that's the thing. i said this at the top of the show. it's not ideas that are lacking. it's political courage on the part of the politicians. let's talk to rob out in the mayson city, iowa. hey, rob, good morning. >> how are you doing? untags good >> bill: good. what's your thought? >> i saw what happened friday. it's sick ended me. >> bill: tears you up. i told your screener, i am an nr member, not going to be any more. i am going to go sell my handgun today, after i drop my little girl off to school and i amplore anybody, if they don't want to make the same actions that i do for god's sake go get locks on your guns, lock them up. put them in a safe, you know. dis assemble
, husband of gabby giffords. that's a family that knows a lot about the kind of tragedies that can happen on an otherwise beautiful day that turns into carnage. let's look a statement that he has put into facebook. he says, as we mourn, we must sound a call for our leaders to stand up and do what is right. this time our response must consist of more than regret, sorrow, and condolence. the children of sandy hook elementary school and all victims of gun violence deserve leaders who have the courage to participate in a meaningful discussion about our gun laws. and that's an example of discussions among people you know and around the country and around the world raising questions with a special focus on gun laws and at the same time being driven by a lot of passion and intense emotions about what we're all going through. this experience traumatized people everywhere. parent like me and people of all ages and stripes. one of the people who weighed in is an ireporter who sent us this video. he's in washington, d.c. he has daughters and he was actually picking up one of his kids at school when
shooting, but the previous shooting of gabby giffords, et cetera, and this washington post graphic actually shows new stories about gun control. the aurora shooting and the representative gabby giffords shooting, but if you look at that kufsh, it quickly falls off in the weeks thereafter. as horrible assist sandy hook was, is there any chance with all the other news with the fess cal cliff, with everything else that, we can sustain the level of outrage long enough for a task force to produce legislation that can pass? >> i think if it was ever going to happen, it will happen now. we're seeing things we have never seen the president do, and we're seeing thing in congress we haven't seen quite at this level. i mean, the president for the first time in his entire time in the white house is actually talking about gun control, period. that alone is progress. the only things he has done to date in the white house were to pass two laws that actually expanded gun rights. >> right. >> now he has a task force. it's led by joe biden. he has already convened it twice. he has met with law enforcement of
saw this happen with gabby giffords and in terms of columbine. obviously, this incident as well. virginia tech. what do you do when you recognize someone that's got a mental illness problem that could be a threat, and how do we as a society handle that? i would suggest to you, that's the thing that's emerging out of that and what we need to do is figure out that broad solution not necessarily jump to the solutions that we're comfortable with. >> the nra lobbied against giving any kind of state database in place that would have given a red flag that loughner was amassing that type of weapononry in arizona to assassinate gabby giffords and then when we talk about adam lanza, i don't know if we would even be having this story, gentlemen, this big conversation, if adam lanza had just shot and killed nancy lanza, and that brings us to the question of whether or not we can allow someone who is deemed to be sane like nancy lanza to have a wealth of money at her disposal, to go out and be a begun enthusiast, to teach her kids how to shoot, but adam lanza didn't go out and buy a gun on h
of arizona, where gabbi giffords was shot, as we did with the movie theater shooting in colorado, but we move on. is there a fairly small window of opportunity to essentially move on something that can be driven by this anger that a lot of americans are feeling, this heartbreak, james? >> that's certainly the case as you say, that there is this doing one thing at a time phenomenon both for us in the news media and for the political system, too. as soon as some new emergency comes up, whatever we were concerned about two days ago seems not to matter. i think, however, there are a couple reasons to think this might be different. unlike other people on the show, i'm old enough to actually remember the political assassinations of the 1960s and there were so many of them, so routinely, there was a sense this cannot be just the norm of american life which i think was what the president was saying last night. we've gotten used to all these shootings every week or two and if we're going to accept that, that is just something terrible about our national essence. i was also very struck by senator manch
going with gabby giffords. i thought for sure that our colleagues would see this as what it is, that there are too many guns out on the street. and the ones we're after, if you look at all of the shootings lately, or the assault weapons -- are the assault weapons and certainly the large magazine clips. this time i would not hold my voice. i said, no, i will start speaking. i am glad to see the white house, and i am proud the president is coming out and saying that we're going to do meaningfully -- do something meaningfully. there are other things we can do. down here for the last couple of years, we have cut the budget, especially for those programs that are in our districts that have to do with mental health. the after-school programs that help some of our troubled children. there are things we can do on the education committee. by the way, i want to say that the school in connecticut did everything right. everything was right. they followed the security plan to the t. the only thing that we saw that possibly could have been improved was the shattered glass on the door where u
, including gabby giffords. we've also seen movements from democrats who are nra-backed democrats like mark warner and joe manchin and even harry reid. i think that we really are at a tipping point where this specific tragedy, because unfortunately it did involve 20 of our most vulnerable, innocent angels, children, i think is something that the public has just had it with. and so while i think it's good that the president did announce this committee, i do think that actual legislation needs to come out of it. >> well, let's talk about actual legislation, ana. do you believe actual legislation will be introduced? and can it actually pass even if it is? >> i absolutely believe that senator feinstein's going to go through with her word. and introduce legislation the first of the year. that it's going to be the first legislation that gets introduced. i think she's committed to this. and i think this is a different moment in time, carol. i think it's a different moment in time for everybody. you know, from the american public, journalists, politicians. it's just something about the recurrence o
